Soldiers: Heroes of World War II reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Old, but this is no less interesting game, you can say the classics of the genre. A Good Story of 4 campaigns (which is not surprising because its author is Alexander Zorić), good physics (destructible environment Even now there is not in all games, what to say about those times), manual control (you can take control of the Infanpatman, tank, Gun, which makes the game much more exciting. And It should be noted that without manual control to pass very difficult. However on-managed in the tank for the first time you hardly give up this pleasure in the future), worthy graphics (by modern standards to it it is possible to fault, but in general all looks well, besides to use the maximal approximation of a camera it is necessary Very seldom, and on the general plans lacks of models are not visible), convenient and logical inventory of fighters (it is impossible to make from a soldier of the superhero who carries on itself a heel of trunks), an opportunity to repair technics and to replenish its ammunition (that gives an opportunity Pass missions in different ways, from the total destruction of the enemy with the help of a trophy tank to stealth tactics where the same tank can explode a charge of dynamite). All This allows you to make a clear conclusion: If This game is not in the collection, it is worth to buy it at the first opportunity.

Soldiers: Heroes of World War II-The first part of the franchise "behind The Enemy". In due time it made a lot of noise, because it had all the components of excellent gameplay: destructibility, realistic behavior of equipment and weapons, a good single. And The cherry on this cake was a multiplayer unlike and unique in its kind. Despite its age to play it is nice and today though it is lagging in some aspects of the subsequent parts. Namely: Management. By default, it is extremely inconvenient especially when you switch to direct control unit (by default CTRL + Arrows), and change it in the settings can not. It is Clear that this case can be changed in config but unpleasant residue remains. Inventory. Its size is extremely small because of what often has to sacrifice something whether it is a weapon or ammo. Units Response. It Happens, you order them to run and at every click they stop. Because of this, more than once had to ship the nearest sev. The Technical side On Win10 has a problem with the launch but it is easily solved through "compatibility". In terms of performance on budget PCS \ Noutah all great. Graphics, of course, worse than in future parts, but still pleasing to the eye. The Result of This game today is quite deservedly can be called a timeless classics, and therefore worth the money.
